Miho Hatori and Yuka Honda timed the birth of Cibo Matto between Nevermind and the ossification of alt-rock. How else to explain their mix of Japanese pop, hip-hop, and techno skirting the mainstream’s outer limits via repeated MTV airings of “Know Your Chicken”? Hotel Valentine, Cibo’s first album in nearly 15 years, bolsters its haunted hotel narrative with guest shots from Reggie Watts and Wilco guitarist Nels Cline. Groovy strangeness abounds on sideways disco jams like “10th Floor Ghost Girl.”
